The 1920s Come Roaring Back with This Textile Collection

September 16, 2021

Unika Vaev’s new Jazzy Collection marches to the beat of its own drum.

The four-part contract textiles collection is inspired by the Jazz Age and the fashions of the Roaring ‘20s, according to design director Courtney Brooks. The four new designs include:

  • Jazzy: A bold, feisty geometric pattern with a circular motif and contrasting colors
  • Ragtime: An organic, linen-like texture with a rugged structure and colors that are vibrant, yet subtle
  • Band: A strong, yet soft bouclé that creates layers of color with yarn twisting and dyeing
  • Fusion: A brushstroke-like composition of novelty twisted yarns that give it a linear aesthetic and velvety texture

“This collection is all about the ease of blending bold pattern, texture and color to create a mixed palette that is both modern and timeless,” Brooks explained. “The namesake of the collection celebrates a crisp, graphic signature, harmonized by melodic organic textures that embody warmth and synergy.”

These lively patterns are ready to dance across panels and furnishings in any space.
